Default "Castaways" Check in Now!

Those of you who will NOT be going on the Cruise of the Century.....

Speak up now and be counted.

We need to get organized. Since everybody is away cruising we need to do two things.....

1) sharpen our needles and start making "Century Cruiser" voodoo dolls to stick them in. (to let them know we are thinking about them)

2) decide what form this website will be in when "they" get back. I personally like "cruiser porn".... however Kuki photos won't sell very well (well, maybe a small contingent might like the "naked nun" shot). Anyone have compromising pics of Anne or Paul?

"Avast CruiseMates scallywags.... heave-to and prepare to be boarded! AARgh!"

Unfortunately, I had to cancel on Century for New Years and hoping the group has a wonderful time. We have a grandson thats just waiting to be born, could be any time.

Wishing all the Century cruisers a wonder New Years cruise!

Another castaway checking in.

Couldn't we talk a film company into shooting "Snakes on the Century Cruiseliner" for that particular sailing. EEEkksss. I mean could you imagine a pool/spa full of snakes not to mention, lifting the lid on the buffet server and having a coouple slither on out.....

Ms Blackjack and Cruise Cynic another castaway checking in I like the way to think. Going with the movie theme if we could get the crew to show the films Titanic and The Poseidon Adventure the entire time they are cruising. I have my Voodoo doll and kniting needles at the ready.

How about the film "Dead Calm?" Surely we can come up with 7 movies, one for each day of the cruise. They will need entertainment.

I don't know. I have heard how Kuki is on these cruises. He might be one of the other characters.

I don't know anything, I guess I am just warped... or maybe it was the nun outfit picture that I saw that led me astray

just think about it for a moment: if you were cruising with 7 people wouldn't it be a hoot to embark dressed up as the Castaways.... (with a little theme music running on someone's IPOD); what great photo ops..

Hi MsBlackJack,
I like your thinking on the PA system hijacking. We need someone good with computers. I suggest instead of Cape Fear we do A Perfect Storm and instead of Deep Rising we do Speed 2: Cruise Control. What do you think?

Yeah those films are better. Could you imagine a hijacked PA system, boy that would land someone in a lot of hot water. Even funnier would be to request the cruisers by name "swab the deck" or "walk the Plank"

If we hijack the PA system I say we just put the theme to "Love Boat" on loop for the 7 day cruise. "The Love Boat soon will be making another run. The Love Boat promises something for everyone." Everyone sing along.
